Public Health issued several new potential public exposure notices for COVID-19 Saturday evening.

The new sites are divided between Zone 1, the Moncton region, and Zone 2, the Saint John region.

The new exposure notices come as New Brunswick is experiencing a spike in cases after removing pandemic restrictions and going green back in July.

As of Friday there were 152 active cases of COVID-19 in the province, the most since April 19, with one person in hospital.

The province is not updating case numbers on weekends.
